The history of the 2016 1 oz Gold Kangaroo

The 2016 1 oz Gold Kangaroo is the latest addition to this popular series of Gold coins. Minting of these Gold coins began in 1987 at the Perth Mint, where Australia’s first Gold sovereigns were manufactured in 1899. Initially, the Australian Gold coins were known as Australian Nuggets, and instead of a kangaroo, the reverse depicted a Gold nugget. In 1990, the Gold coins began featuring a kangaroo and the tradition continues to this day.

Why collect 2016 1 oz Gold Kangaroos?

2016 1 oz Gold Kangaroos blend the best of both worlds by being worthy of both collecting and investing. Many collect the Gold coins because the design of the kangaroo changes annually, making the Gold bullion coins highly collectible. Others add these Australian Gold coins to their investment portfolios because they are legal tender guaranteed by the Perth Mint, and they are approved for use in Precious Metals IRAs.

Consider investing in 2016 1 oz Gold Kangaroos if you are looking for Gold bullion approved by the Internal Revenue Service for use with Precious Metals IRAs. Before buying Gold coins for your IRA, the IRS requires that you open a custodian account, if you do not already have one.

Perth Kangaroos

By  Shag

5.0

The Gold Kangaroo series from the Perth Mint in Australia is a top-quality product that is fun to collect. Manufacturing quality is of the highest standard (I haven't been disappointed yet). The designs on the reverse side of the coins change every year and I've enjoyed the most recent variations very much. Each coin arrives from the Mint sealed in an acrylic capsule. The coins themselves are the same size as the AGE and AGB. Highly recommended!

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Mint Condition

A bargain among the 1 oz gold bullion coins

By  Robert

from Jersey City, NJ

5.0

The Perth mint is well known to mint high quality coins at a relatively low premium over spot. In comparison to other 1 oz bullion coins, the Kangaroo coin comes protected in a high quality coin capsule. One could dismiss that feature by pointing out to the fact that there are countless coin capsules on the secondary market available at a very low price. I tried many of these and was always disappointed by the overall poor quality of these capsules. In comparison, the Kangaroo coin is packaged in a high quality capsule which is specially designed for the coin so the coin fits the capsule thightly. None of the other bullion coins on the market comes with such a capsule. That is the reason why I almost exclusively collect the Kangaroo coins. It is indeed a bargain when all features of the coin are taken into account.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Easy to Sell

When you buy 2016 1 oz Gold Kangaroos, consider how global demand affects your investment.

When purchasing 2016 1 oz Gold Kangaroo coins, you are purchasing physical Gold that has been considered a valuable asset by people for thousands of years. Jewelry, rather than Gold coins, was considered the first Gold currency, and the use of Gold to fabricate jewelry dates back to at least 4,000 B.C. The demand for Gold coins and jewelry has continued since that time, and now it is also prized for its use in electronics, dentistry, computers and other industries. When you buy Gold, it is wise to be familiar with how the price of Gold is affected by the demand for the Precious Metal.
